A ringing phone threatened to disrupt the UK Championship final as it went off midway through a shot from Zhao Xintong.
The 24-year-old was down over a red in the final frame of the first session when the phone started ringing.
He decided not to pull away from the shot and calmly potted the ball into the pocket.
